Kids Play With Their Food And Eat Less



My child has to be coerced to eat--there are certain foods she enjoys eating herself, but she runs off & plays between bites. I stretch out my meals so I'm taking bites when she is. I eat less & feel more full. My portions are bigger than hers, but my bites are, too. Plus, I've learned the value of making finger foods fun, healthy, & kid-friendly at the same time. I want her to eat healthy, & it's impossible for me to cook healthy for her but not for me, because she wants whatever I have!
